WORK FROM THE DO GOOD FUND
CURATED BY HANNAH ISREAL
Tender is Our Skin is an exhibition of photographs, films, videos, and voices by artists whose work explores the intimate moments of coming of age. The selection of works focuses on individual narratives and contemplates how stereotypes are shaped in our society. Through the artist lens and voices the exhibition challenges how society defines concept of identity and kinship at the threshold of youth and adulthood. The exhibition questions how traditional rites of passage have changed over time influenced by social climate, history, and environmental changes.
The exhibition will feature photographs from the collection of the Do Good Fund and selected works by artists whose work is in the collection.
